Man Kind? Our Incredible War on Wildlife
Harper & Row, New York, NY, 1974, 1st Ed. Hardbound. Man Kind? Our Incredible War on Wildlife by Cleveland Amory. Published by Harper & Row, New York, NY, 1974. 1st Edition. Hardbound, Paper DJ. Size 8vo (up to 9-1/2'' tall). Condition: Nr Fine in Chipped DJ. 372 Pgs. ISBN 0060100923. LCCN 76-181605. A book written after indefatigable research and with rare humor, which varies from light satire to how, searing irony, the author describes man playing God for his own self-serving purposes, for, as the three parts of the book indicated, fun, money, and revenge. The book begins with the saga of the Hunt-the-Hunters Hunt Club - and ends with a truly touching look at what is obviously the author's favorite of all the creatures of the wild. Names are named here and intimate stories told, from those the author calls ''Big Shot'' Teddy Roosevelt to ''whaler-dealer'' Aristotle Onassis. Animal societies too are named, and their stories told, including the societies whose idea of ''conservation'' is to sell more guns and ammunitions. You will be fascinated by this book; at the same time, when you put it down, you will be angry. And you will never feel the same again about an animal head on the wall, a fur coat on you back, or the howl of coyote down the canyon. Description text copyright 2006 BooksForComfort. Item ID 11121.
